Carmela’s Mexican Restaurant

1701 Central Ave
McKinleyville, 95519
Reviews:
What drove me to Carmela's was that they had some Redwood Curtain IGA on tap, and after some reviews of Yelp, I soon realized that this was probably the "best" Mexican food in the Arcata/McKinleyville area. So we hopped into the FJ and gave it a try. I have to say the main problem with the review streams on Yelp, is SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE. But for us, Victor was more than pleasant. He was also timely, non-intrusive, and professional. Hmmm, so it depends for sure, or maybe the management has been turning staff, I don't know. But if service is your beef you need to re-invest in a visit. Let's move on to the critical area of the kitchen quality: My wife had the Mole Poblano with chicken, VERY good. It was spicy warm and just oozing with that Mole richness. It was twice what she could eat. A lumberjack's portion. My 12 year old son had a Chimichunga. It looked good, fresh and big. I wanted to try the Mole Verde, but they were out. So Victor suggested one of his Mexico City favorites, a Huarache. It's a masa base topped with a delicious steak and cactus fry. It is then finished off with Pico de Gallo, Cilantro, and Queso Fresca. I found it delicious indeed! This was the first time I got to sample this popular (in) Mexico dish, and I was thrilled. I know there are so many good dishes in Mexico most Americans never touch, and Carmela's has some. I saw a person order the Burrito Supremo, my god it looked like 3 pounds of food. Again lumberjack portions are here at average prices. If I were to ding Carmela's for anything it would be the ambience. It is a bit confused between diner quality and finer quality. It has clean and and some interesting Mexican artifacts, but overall the dining experience could be enhanced some with a few changes out in the dining room and I guess a long run at Service quality. Overall Carmela's is very enjoyable and feels like home cooked Mexican fare. But don't take that from a Gringo. Just go venture that menu and try it.
I've been eating here once in a while for almost two years now, and it's a hit or miss, I find that I like getting my order to-go best. Any time I have eaten at the restaurant in the past the service was slow, food was slow, or the waitress/waitor was unfriendly, but the food is typically good. I normally get a chimichanga with carnitas, and it is pretty good. The burrito is reasonably large and on the side you get lettuce, diced tomatoes, guaucamole and sour cream, Mix all those flavors together and it is super yummy. I called in my usual order and it took about fifteen minutes. When I went to pick up my order the staff just looked at me, no greetings, no smiles, nothing but a blank stare. Nobody came up to the counter for a good five minutes. When I called in my order, the man asked me if I would also like rice & beans with my food and I ended up saying "yes" in case my boyfriend wanted some, but he didn't warn me that it would cost extra (silly me for not knowing better...) my bill was a lot more than I was expecting, but I was way too hungry at that point to bring it up. The three stars are because the food was good and filling..and because it was the first time in my life that I actually liked rice & beans...
MOLE chicken.. great dish.. been going to carmellas for years.. there is a shortage of good mexican food in humboldt county but not at carmellas,,, ;)

Ive eaten here a few times. It seems kinda weird a restaurant in a gas station but I was pleasantly surprised to find tasty, huge portions of fresh food!. People complain about the prices but I think the HUGE portion sizes are equal to the Mexican restaurant across the street without the hasdle of waiting 20 minutes for a server or another 30 to get food... Flavor wise vs pricewise...adequate for NorCal. Ive only had tacos, burritos...and they were really tasty... I dont know about the other foods but its def worth the repeat.
